Red Sox 07 Game 91 Recap


Press Pass l Box Score l Play-By-Play l Recap
Toronto 020000000280
Boston 0000 0 10001111
W: Litsch (2-3) L: Beckett (12-3) S: Accardo (13)

► Hero - The wind - you didn't know how any balls were going to fall
► Goat - The wind - I'm not giving this to Beckett when he goes out and pitches 8 innings of 2 run ball.

Game thoughts!

A freaking pitchers duel that was decided by three batters in the second. The only time that Beckett even came close to struggling. After 8 innings his ERA is now 3.35.

Two for nine with RISP and a player thrown out at the plate to end the fourth leads to this loss. The biggest failure came in the third when Lugo and Crisp started off the inning with singles. With Cora at the plate he tried to lay down a bunt towards third that Litsch was able to grab and get Lugo at third. Papi then swung at the next pitch and hit into a 1-6-3 double play.

With the following numbers - Varitek vs Accardo - 1 for 1, Drew vs Accardo - 0 for 2, Pena vs Accardo - 2 for 5. Why was Hinske batting in the bottom of the ninth? Its even more perplexing when you see that left handed batters were 8 for 64 vs Accardo this season.

Sox have lost 14 games decided by 1 run. Jays are 3 - 0 in those games vs the Sox.

Freaking Jays.
